Roger Rumors  
So there have been a lot of rumors about who will be playing Roger MacKenzie Wakefield in the Second season of Outlander. I've heard Richard Madden (Rob Stark, Game of Thrones) and  Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian, The Chronicles of Narnia Prince Caspian). These were just that rumors. Though I think mostly, fan hopefuls. People, of course, have just been speculating because it is, frankly, fun to do.

This new rumor has and air of leaky ship at Starz. Now saying that, it might not at all be true and it is highly possible this is just another attempt to toss Starz an idea but only time with tell... so here is the rumor.
This is Kevin Ryan. Apparently, he turned down a career in music, singing and playing his guitar (which we all know Roger can do) to pursue acting. He had a major role in BBCA's show Copper and was on NBC's Crossbones (I watched that and I don't remember this pretty face!).

On his twitter account, he announced he had big news (which was later deleted) but no telling what it was. And guess who is following him... Outlander. So I feel like this could be true but if not... it was a nice fantasy.

As we learned with Cait, height (Cait is taller than book Claire) and features (different eye color than book Claire) don't really matter. Personally, I don't care if Brianna isn't tall as long as she has red hair and blue eyes. As for Roger, yes he's fairly tall in the book and it shouldn't be difficult to come up with an excellent actor who's at least 6' tall. I don't really care if he has green eyes. If they REALLY want green eyes, have him were contacts.

Exactly. I feel like Jamie's eyes are the only ones that really matter. I just hope the actor choosen is a great actor who will feel like Roger as we watch him.
